......


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
What are you up to? Oh, planning our next show?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Ah, it's you, Michiru.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
I didn't realize it was already time for that.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Whoa, you've put your name down for almost everything. You don't have to do it all on your own, do you?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I'm just doing what's necessary to make the play perfect.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Wow, that's what sets real stars apart from us mortals.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
This is my show, and I take responsibility for everything. Naturally, I'll be expecting a lot from everyone else as well.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
I'll be looking forward to a good show, and seeing how you and the others grow!

Akira (icon).png Akira:
That's it for the day.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Okay! Huff... Huff... Thank you!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Oh, Akira-san! Let me take care of cleaning up!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I don't like people getting in my way. Go rest.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
No, I'll be fine! I can do it all by myself, so please head back to the dorm first.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
If you insist. I'm leaving it to you, then.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
We did the same practice routine but it's as if it didn't affect her at all. That's the measure of the difference between us... But eventually, I'll close that gap!

Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
G-Good morning, Yukishiro-senpai! Um...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Yes? Do you want something?


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
No, it's not that...


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
I wanted to tell you that I'm looking forward to practicing with you today!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Is that it?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
No need to get so worked up about it. But remember that when I'm there, I expect everyone to strive for perfection.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Yes, of course! I'll do my best!

Train Station

Akira (icon).png Akira:
People-watching... This is what Michiru is doing all the time? It seems in bad taste.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Akira-senpai? What are you doing here?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Ah, Yachiyo. I'm observing strangers.


Yachiyo (icon).png Yachiyo:
Oh, you're people-watching? Yeah, studying others' expressions is useful for acting, and it's quite interesting in general.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Expressions? So that's what I was supposed to be paying attention to. What an oversight...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
You have my thanks, Yachiyo. I shall carry on with observation.

Akira (icon).png Akira:
This will be it for today.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
But...I can keep going!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I can see that you have energy for more, but you're still a junior high student. You have to consider the best way for you to build stamina.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
This goes for us as well, but for a growing girl like you it's especially risky to push yourself too hard when practicing.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Yukishiro-senpai...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Instead, let's finish with a series of stretches for the whole body. You'd do well to incorporate them into your routine.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Of course! Thank you!

Shopping Mall

Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
Are you doing some shopping, Yukishiro-senpai?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Yes, I went to the foreign foods store.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
What did you buy? I see there's a red packet of something poking out of your bag.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Those are Carolina Reaper chips. They're chili peppers.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
That's a scary name... Maybe you should be careful with them.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I'm mindful of my calorie consumption. You don't need to tell me that.


Shiori (icon).png Shiori:
(I wasn't talking about the calories...)

Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
What are you snacking on, Akira-san?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Carolina Reaper chips. Want some? You should be fine since you like spicy foods.


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
There are lots of spicy dishes in my regional cuisine back home, so sure!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Ugh... My mouth hurts, and tears are streaming from my eyes for some reason...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Stop! Don't touch your eyes with the hand you touched the chips with!


Meifan (icon).png Mei Fan:
Huh? Aaagh!


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Too late... Mei Fan, I hope you can draw on this painful experience to further your acting skills.

Akira (icon).png Akira:
Yumeoji... I never expected her to return to the stage at Rinmeikan.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
When she left Siegfeld, she had lost her way and was unable to stand on stage.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I thought she was a disgrace.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
She made it as far as to earn a title, yet proved to be the same as those who are too weak to make it at our school.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
She lost her reason for performing. But now, she's back on stage.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I see. She must have found new motivation, either by herself or...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
No, there is little point to guessing. She was a true Stage Girl, after all. That's all there is to it.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
The truth will be clear if I see her on stage. I must focus on refining my own skills, nothing more.

Akira (icon).png Akira:
Hmm... This laptop is acting up.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
What's wrong? Did it crash?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
It just looks different from usual.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
Yachiyo must have changed the settings. You've got to change view.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
The view? Ah, in that case I'll move over to the window where there's a better view.


Michiru (icon).png Michiru:
No, wait...

Akira (icon).png Akira:
I'd like you to have this. It's not anything extravagant--just a little token of my gratitude.
